The FSC Co-organized the European Museum Academy Awards Ceremony


The International Foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures and European Museum Academy organized the international conference which was attended by more than 80 participants from 27 countries at the international conference of the European Museum Academy. The conference was accompanied by the EMA Awards ceremony for Luigi Michelletti, DASA and Heritage in Motion awards.
